【日本語】More of my favorite Actors Part 2

Since my last posts about my favorite Japanese actors and actresses, I’ve become familiar with a few more and I’d  like to share them because I think they are all extremely versatile and talented and worth spending hours in front of the TV/Monitor.

I think men and women are both called actors nowadays (at least here in the US), but I will separate my list into two posts so it’s not too long. As in the last posts in this series a ☆ will indicate “recommended awesome”.
